As PhoneArena spotted recently, the tablet has quietly been filed under the name of the Samsung SM-P905 at the FCC.

A purported benchmark test from AnTuTu would seem to indicate that the tablet has an impressive 2560 x 1600 resolution display, the quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of storage and dual-facing cameras (8MP snapper on the rear, 2MP camera on the front).

Intel’s next Bay Trail processors could make for even cheaper Android tablets

Unnamed sources from “tablet players” told Taiwanese website Digitimes that the new processors are likely to be cheaper than the current models, a sign perhaps that Intel is looking to compete directly with ARM in the low-end market. The same sources apparently expect the CPUs to be priced between $15 and $20, about $12 than the current models. In the past, Intel is said to have offered subsidies on its Bay Trail-T processors – including discounts for OEMs on bulk ordering – but prices supposedly remained more expensive than ARM-based quad-core processors from the likes of Nvidia, Qualcomm and Mediatek.
